Bernstein Liebhard LLP is investigating whether the Board of Directors of The Pep Boys—Manny, Moe & Jack (“Pep Boys” or the “Company”) (NYSE: PBY) breached its fiduciary duty to its shareholders in agreeing to sell Pep Boys to The Gores Group.
Under the terms of the agreement, Pep Boys shareholders will receive $15.00 in cash for each share they own. The investigation is focused on the potential unfairness of the price to Pep Boys shareholders and the process by which the Pep Boys Board of Directors considered and approved the transaction.
